Will this system work for what I need it to. I am converting a Sieg X3 and i picked this up really cheap. It is a 4axis controller and driver system. I was going to build my own with gecko's and such but this was much cheaper and it seemed to have everything i needed. I didnt properly research the item enough before I bought it which is my stupidity. Will i be able to use Mach3 or am I stuck with its terminal software. It seems from everything that i've read that the controller and driver are integrated into one part. Please let me know. Thx
It looks like you write a and download a program through the serial port for stand alone operation, that would probabally be good if you were doing repetitive production jobs. Although it does hold multiple programs.
It may get a bit restrictive if you want to do one off's etc.
It appears to be programmed in native language only so G code is probabally out.
